A CHARMING PERIOD PROPERTY WITH NEARBY HISTORIC RIVERSIDE WALKS IN ONE OF YORKS MOST DESIRABLE LOCATIONS
Believed to date from the late 19th Century and constructed of attractive brick elevations under a slate roof, Number 3 Holly Terrace is a first class example of many of the fine town houses built on the edge of the city centre in the latter part of the Victorian era. Holly Terrace occupies an elevated position and enjoys an uninterrupted view across the River Ouse and immediately adjoins the New Walk, the historic riverside walk which gives easy access to the city centre whilst just a short distance away lies the Millennium Bridge which gives pedestrian access to Rowntree Park. Holly Terrace lies a short distance away from Fishergate and local shops. The property is ideally located for the city centre, the A64 and the University of York.
Over the years, the property has been upgraded and improved and now offers elegant, high quality, modern living accommodation whilst at the same time retaining many original features to include moulded plasterwork cornices, panelled doors with architraves, boarded floors, period fireplaces and sash windows.
Notably, the owners have created an off-street car parking space by the installation of an electric roller door in the boundary wall of the rear courtyard with access gained from Frances Street.
An attractive doorcase with a brick-on-end arch opens to the Entrance Hall with an Amtico tiled floor which leads to an elegant Sitting Room arranged to the front elevation where a wide canted bay offers an uninterrupted view over the front garden to the river beyond. Completing the picture is a boarded floor, picture rail, concealed radiator and a stone fireplace with tiled hearth and gas fire. Adjacent lies the Dining Room complete with gas stove, deep built in traditional wall cupboards and understairs store cupboard whilst beyond is the Kitchen with wooden worksurfaces, Belfast sink with mixer tap, Samsung oven and Bosch 4-ring induction hob with extractor hood above, plumbing for washing machine and dishwasher, wooden base cupboards and matching wall cupboards above incorporating a plate rack. Beyond is a Cloakroom with low level flush WC and vanity unit with circular washbasin and mixer tap. Off the half landing is a spacious Bathroom with panelled bath with Pegler antique style mixer tap and hand held shower unit, corner shower cubicle with Aqualisa shower head, low level flush WC, heated towel rail and wide vanity unit housing twin circular washbasins with mixer taps and wall mirrors above. Adjacent is a separate WC. The principal bedroom is arranged to the front elevation where two sash windows offer wonderful river views and comes complete with ceiling coving, a boarded floor and twin hanging wardrobes. The second first floor bedroom is arranged to the rear and has a boarded floor, cast iron period fireplace with stone hearth and wardrobe cupboard. To the second floor is a third bedroom with Velux roof lights to both front and rear elevations and access to eaves storage space.
To the front of the house is a pleasant west facing garden from where one may enjoy uninterrupted views of the river.
